Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.52987
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2005:476
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:

The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2005:476.

OpenSSL is a toolkit that implements Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and
Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols as well as a full-strength
general purpose cryptography library.

Colin Percival reported a cache timing attack that could allow a malicious
local user to gain portions of cryptographic keys. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the name
CVE-2005-0109 to the issue. The OpenSSL library has been patched to add a
new fixed-window mod_exp implementation as default for RSA, DSA, and DH
private-key operations. This patch is designed to mitigate cache timing
and potentially related attacks.

A flaw was found in the way the der_chop script creates temporary files. It
is possible that a malicious local user could cause der_chop to overwrite
files (CVE-2004-0975). The der_chop script was deprecated and has been
removed from these updated packages. Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 did not
ship der_chop and is therefore not vulnerable to this issue.

Users are advised to update to these erratum packages which contain patches
to correct these issues.

Please note: After installing this update, users are advised to either
restart all services that use OpenSSL or restart their system.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
